Spanish Lesson Plans
November-December 2017

Kinder/1st grade – “Pequeñito Me Enseña los Números”.  Spanish number and color words are introduced with the help of “Pequeñito el Osito”. 

2nd grade -  “Ay ay ay Pobrecito José….no tiene piernas”.  The children met José.  Poor José is missing body parts…piernas, pies, manos…Using the vocabulary for this unit, we play an interactive game calling out the parts of the body that poor José is missing.
“ Los Meses del Año “-  we are learning about  different events that occur throughout the months of the year in Spanish. We are memorizing the names of the months and further learning how to express “la fecha” in Spanish in the proper format. “Hoy es lunes 18 de noviembre, 2017.

3rd grade-  Lección 1: “El Español y el Inglés” .  In this our first chapter this year, the children will realize that learning Spanish will probably be easier than they thought. Why? Because there are many words that either are the same, or almost the same in Spanish as in English !  We realize how many Spanish words we already know ! We further explore the usage of “the” in Spanish, and practice writing simple sentences by pairing nouns and adjectives introduced in this lesson. Our Spanish vocabulary is extensively enriched by the end of this lección !

4th grade –   We are still deep into verbs and will be for a while.   We are learning to substitute nouns with pronouns. We are using our verb charts to translate English sentences into Spanish, using the proper form of the various verbs learned. We will soon begin Lección 4: Las Actividades.

5th grade – We are taking a further look at adjectives on Lección 8: La Descripción. We will learn how adjectives in Spanish must agree in gender and in number, all while adding many new adjectives to our vocabulary.  We will be learning about comparisons such as “mas alto que” (taller than), “menos alto que” (less tall than), and “tan alto como” ( as tall as ). We will wrap up the unit with a short story about “La Ciudad de Nueva York”.
